LabRoots, the leading scientific social networking website offering premier, interactive virtual events and webinars, will be hosting its Clinical Diagnostics & Research online event on Thursday, November 12th, 2020. This year’s educational conference now in its 11th year, provides an annual forum for leading academia and industry experts, clinicians, research scholars, pathologists, laboratory managers and physicians to explore the latest trends and developments that impact the clinical diagnostics field.
In an unprecedented time for healthcare, this packed agenda includes thought-provoking sessions on advances in diagnostic technologies, leveraging laboratory data, considerations for specific patient populations, and laboratory stewardship and patient safety, to complete the day.
The program kicks off with a presentation sponsored by Visiopharm on standardization with clinical digital pathology – the Ki-67 case to get a glimpse of the future AI-powered workflows for biomarker analysis, followed by a stellar keynote delivery titled, ‘Choosing Wisely lab utilization first steps: addressing the low hanging fruit’ presented by Jeannie Callum, BA, MD, FRCPC, Professor of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology, University of Toronto and Director of Laboratory Utilization, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.
“Over-utilization of laboratory tests is a major problem for hospitals but can also be seen as a major opportunity for improving patient care and reducing healthcare costs,” said Jeannie Callum, Professor of Laboratory Medicine and Pathobiology at the University of Toronto and Director of Laboratory Utilization at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto. “The Choosing Wisely initiatives that have been launched worldwide provide a road map for assisting hospitals with deciding where to commence their lab utilization quality improvement projects and numerous quality improvement publications and provide guidance on how to implement and evaluate such projects; I’m delighted to share this important information to progress efficiency in the laboratory via Labroots’ unique virtual platform.”
Key featured presenters and a panel exchange introduce timely topics such as, back to work, school, and life – utility of COVID-19 testing to help communities restore normality, demonstrating the value of laboratory medicine through population health, artificial intelligence and its application in cardiovascular early risk prediction, laboratory testing for opioids, portable and wearable medical devices: a nanotechnology approach, and using laboratory data to improve health care delivery and patient outcomes naming just a few on the schedule.
“We are excited to have such a prominent group of speakers in the lineup,” said Greg Cruikshank, Chief Executive Officer of LabRoots. “As clinical laboratory continues to be a major source of health care data, we hope this year as in subsequent years, benefits our attendees with informative discussions to improve diagnostic test utilization in the laboratory and continue to advance research, healthcare operations and patient outcomes.”
Produced on LabRoots’ signature platform, this interactive environment allows participants to connect seamlessly across desktop and mobile devices and encompasses a lobby, auditorium, exhibit and poster halls (featuring up-to-date emerging technologies and recent contributions in the field), and a networking lounge to encourage collaborations.
